What is the best way to get a still image from a video clip. I have an 8MM film copied to DVD and want to get a still image off it. I have tried using Freeze Frame and exporting the image but even though the image looks good in the video, it has considerable edge banding which blurs the picture when I freeze frame it. Any suggestions?
As I say in my books, in version 9 you should use Share/Computer/Image to save a still image.
In my books I show you how to create a preset to save the image as a 640x480 square pixel image.
Once you've created the image, you can open it in Photoshop Elements and go to Filter/Video/Deinterlace to make it look even better!
